It’s been a while since I presented anything crochet in this part crochet blog. And it’s not because I haven’t been crocheting: I have. Not as much as I’d like to though. I think my last crochet post was a half moon crochet face mask, which I hope you liked. Now, another accessory just in time for spring. 👍🏾
These are fresh off of my crochet fingers. They are made of 100% cotton yarn, but you truly can use any yarn of the same weight. You will need to be able to do single crochet (SC), Double Crochet (DC), Slip Stitch (SL ST) and chains of course (Chain). They whip up in 10-15 minutea. There is some general crochet terminology in the pattern below. Here’s how you can DIY.
- Faux hoops and fish hook findings (Got mine at Wal Mart)
- Yarn weight Medium 4 (I used Sugar and Cream)
- Hook size F
- Small scissors
- Smaller hook to tie in loose ends
Tie your yarn onto the earring hoop by making a knot at 🕛 12:00. Then, work 20 single crochets around the hoop to the other side. Ch 3, turn
Row 2: you will single crochet in every stitch to opposite side (20 SCs). Ch 3, turn
Row 3: sk3 and slip stitch (ST) into front of 3rd stitch, do this all the way across. (7) ch3, turn
Row 4: Sk (Skip) 1st ST, DC in next CH, Ch2, and every other CH across to the other side.
Work in loose ends or snip ‘em and tuck them in. Add a little stitch glue if you do the latter.
These earrings are lightweight and of course, can be made in any color that you may choose. I think they are more of a spring accessory if you use cotton yarn as opposed to wool or acrylic.
